T-Rex – Electric Warrior

There’s very few bands that summarise rock and roll more than T-Rex. Led by the wild haired Marc Bolan, the band blazed a trail for many bands to follow throughout their all to short career, which was ended when Bolan died in a car accident in 1977, aged just 29. However, before his untimely demise, the band recorded one of ...
